Sometimes you just don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Some days you are in a rush and just don’t have the time and some days you just don’t feel like cooking. I’ve had quite a few of the latter lately. :) So tonight’s dinner was a quick 30 minute meal which proves that you can feed your family well even if you are short on time.
Spinach Cheese Pasta
16 oz pasta (I used Racconto 100% whole wheat shells)
1 bunch spinach (rinsed, dried and stems removed)
2-3 cloves garlic
12 oz cottage cheese
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
Cook the pasta according to package directions. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and saute for a minute. Add the spinach and cook until wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
Remove from heat and stir in cottage cheese until it starts to melt.
This recipe gets the seal of approval from the whole family. Even the twins ate it up, although Ellie fished out all the spinach to eat first and Will picked out all the spinach and threw it on the floor. Oh well, between the two of them they ate everything. :)
